Quick update

Got on the trail yesterday with the Jabberwocky for a bit..in brief, my thoughts are:

Traction while climbing is great
Turns/switchbacks are easier
Cornering is faster/more stable
Descending-I feel more stable and can get my weight back easier
Rigid fork- tried the KM fork..not so much. It would be fun to ride with one (I'll probably get one as a backup at some point), but I don't want to race with one. So, now I need to find a way to get a White Brothers Magic 80. Hmm.

Oh by the way, there is a 12 hour lap race in the Southeast this weekend, and the forecast is for rain. Hmm..a muddy 12 hour race..THAT never happens. Yeah, right. I think the whole Georgia MTB community will be there this weekend. See ya there.

I won't be there...sniffle. But I'm hoping I'll actually be able to do an endurance MTB event by the time Dauset rolls around. Have a good time. Watch out for the wet clay should it rain too much. It can't be worse than Tsali, right?

Hey Mal,

If you're back on the bike we should catch up for a ride sometime soon. Hope you are well.

Nice looking bike. My wife was looking at this bike because of all the cool paint job options, but in the end she went with an On One 29er. Seems like Vassago Cycles is taking forever to come out with their rigid fork too...
